  1. Is that Sasquatch on Sherman Pass? The Washington State Department of Transportation posted this photo suggesting it “might be Sasquatch.” https://www.spokesman.com/stories/2020/jan/22/is-that-sasquatch-on-sherman-pass/
  2. Except when it's ADN's fault. If Dark finds out..... .....yeah, probably best to blame ADN rather than Dilber.
  3. On rechecking, it is only the Chambers that I cannot post in. Might check if it's the same for you.
  4. Thanks for the link, I'd thought that there was an announcement, but did not find it. I figured the appointment would be listed in the Hall of Peers though. Often times new forums are requested without posting rights in the first place, and then opened to the public later. I've been wondering why no one requested posting permissions be granted there since last March, but RL was rather busy back then for me, and as an involuntary Admin, I mind my own business unless the Admin team needs help. Might want to put in an Admin request if you want Peers to be able to post in there.
  5. As a member of the Hall of Peers, I have a couple questions. I am unable to ask them in the Hall itself, as posting is restricted there (even for Admins). 1. Shouldn't posting rights be granted to Peers to post in their Chambers? There's been no posts or discussions beyond the Delegate's Spring 2019 announcements as a result. 2. The Manners of The West Pacific state: Who is The Chancellor of The Hall of Peers? I'm not finding any appointment noted. 3. Is the current list of Peers up to date? It just seems that the Peers will have a difficult time carrying out their Manners prescribed duties, should the need or desire arise, without a Chancellor or posting rights.
  6. Pick your theory! Will the Universe Expand forever, or will it collapse into The Big Crunch?
  7. In the 1980's my friends once told me I should move to Montana and start a cult, but that's hardly worldwide. I stopped signing up on new forums years ago. NS Life is less stressful that way.
  8. "Well, there you go again." - Ronald Reagan It's quite an experience isn't it? Welcome!
  9. "Believing that any nation that shows extreme dedication to its home region,......deserves recognition by this esteemed Assembly" Better get busy writing thousands of commend resolutions then. Against.
  10. It is an interesting dynamic in NationStates that we have a simple, basic text-based game with larger-deeper player created functions and interactions that go far beyond the basic game. Just follow Alice down the Rabbit Hole and who knows what you might find in the depths of NS. Welcome to The West Pacific!
  11. Once upon a time in NationStates, failure to clear the citizenship rolls of inactive members became a problem. Entropy of Activity in NationStates is a problem that arises over and over again. No matter how dynamic and active a region's community may be, activity eventually wanes, folks are distracted by RL, and Regional Officials get burn-out. Citizen/Players fade away. Then newer players with their own ideas of activity come along. They find the inactivity of the existing citizenry boring. So they write and present new Legislation to be voted upon, to shape the region with new activity that interests them. The ideas come up for a vote, and those old inactive citizens that haven't posted in months come out of the woodwork to vote, and they vote against the new player's legislation. The idea dies. Inactivity is thus perpetuated, and the frustrated new players go elsewhere. To combat this phenomena of the 'Old Guard' coming out to vote when they are otherwise inactive, Regions began to establish Activity Requirements to ensure that voting citizens are actively engaged in the regional community. Posting requirements can be more important for Regional Officials as well. Once upon a time, there were requirements for Ministers and Deputies to post no less than every other day, and requirements to post a notice and assign a deputy if a Minister will be absent for longer than a couple days. Activity begets Activity in NS, while the Entropy of Activity is the corrosive rust that destroys regions and communities.
  12. I've seen 94Block around NS too, speaking of banned forum destroyers.
